Despite the international week proving more exciting than many had anticipated – in England’s case at least – we’re more than happy to see domestic football back in action this week.
The Premier League might grab the headlines but there are plenty of intriguing encounters in the Championship and some that appear easy to call.
Backing Blackburn, Bolton, Bournemouth and Boro looks the way to go and here James Curtis explains why the 17/1 on this fourfold should not be ignored.
Leeds may have won last time out but victory over Blackpool is nothing to crow about this season.
Before claiming three points against the Tangerines, United had failed to win in six games and with Rovers unbeaten in seven and doing the double over Leeds last year this looks like only going one way.
Blackpool are the team that everyone wants to play at the moment, with the Seasiders on a run of five losses and one draw from their last six.
Such form makes them impossible to back against a rejuvenated Trotters side that has won four of their last six matches, including their last two.
Dean Court plays host to two of the league’s form sides this weekend with the Cherries unbeaten in eight games and the Tractor Boys having lost just once in that time.
Both matches last season ended all square but with Bournemouth winning seven of their last eight and Ipswich winning just three the hosts have to be backed here.
Boro have lost just one of their last seven games, while the Latics have taken maximum points just once in that time.
Wigan haven’t beaten Boro since 2007 and while the DW Stadium faithful will be hopeful that the new manager effect will spur them to victory there will be plenty of fans hoping it won’t.
